    Maybe they have friends and family overseas? They seem to be ok with the idea of used condoms? so when do we start? :cool:
    I'm not convinced. I feel a moral obligation to give them unused condoms. It seems the least you can do for these poor people.

    Ok fair enough. I guess i will have to give them unused ones, but its probably best to test a few out first to make sure their okay?

    not much point. just because the first two don't have holes in them doesn't mean the third one doesn't. Condoms are very individual like that. Just give the poor people the condoms, they need them!

    I can take a mean sample. Like out of 10,000 we can use every 100th one or so? That should give us some type of idea. Its best to be safe than sorry.

    I will happily replace the ones we use to ensure the consistency of the bunch.

    but then how would you know that the new ones might not be defective?

    but then you're replenishing stock from the stock you were already going to give to the poor people

    it's like having 5 apples, eating two of them, and then removing another 2 and then putting them back again. So you're left with 3. Whereas if you had just not eaten the apples in the first place, you'd still have 5 apples.

    it seems the condoms are leaving you in a quandary. Perhaps you should give the poor people chocolate instead.

    I agree poor people could do with them. If I want chocolate or condoms though I'll just nip to tesco.

    I went on an expedition to Nepal in 2010 and whilst I was there I helped renovate a local school. I took books, pens, pencils + sharpeners, erasers, paper, stickers, etc, and the children were really grateful for them. I also took some drawings that my family and friends did and the children put them on the walls at the school to brighten up the classrooms. Take as much as you can possibly carry as everything is very much appreciated.
